* As you may have heard, Tony D is hors de combat. He fell down his stairs in the middle of the night and cracked his pelvis. He is walking about on crutches but, he says, it is very painful. Jon M is also not well, he has been in bed for the last couple of days, but is up today. Tony N is walking well. He made it to the coffee morning at the Dacre Rooms yesterday. BobM is back on parade, as is Keith.
* We have been asked to add Bonnie to the Ayot church notice board - David's skills in demand. Also see if it needs any other attention. We can fetch it in due
* Do go and look (and feel) the Harding gate now it is hung, Les has done (as we have come to expect) a superb job. We still have to strengthen the post somehow.
Last Wednesday we put out tables, chairs and the screens for a WI anniversary party. We had a monster bonfire at the allotment - burned everything, Pete was not concerned with wet wood, it all went. We loaded all the allotment rubbish into a skip, and from behind the Dacre Rooms the concrete support of a litter bin, and the old chair seats from the Dacre Rooms. We retrieved a dead fallen tree from Butt End Side and took it to the bonfire, we moved the new picnic tables out from behind the Dacre Rooms and took one of the old ones up to our bonfire site for us to use. Les and Jack finished off work on the Harding gate, and worked out to fix the rubbish bin on the Rec.
On Thursday Pete and I went to Rothampstead to fetch eleven bundles of Willows for the school.
